We finally own a little chunk of land and my family and I have decided to enjoy the life of raising chickens. I have a 7, 4, and 10 month old. I was wondering how worried I should be about my kids getting sick from handling the chicks (soon chickens). My kids are totally in love and want to hold and raise these chicks are pets and members of the family. I love the idea! My wife and I just want to be cautious and make sure the family and the chicks are safe. I know that the best measures are hand washing and sanitizer, but I'm not sure how this works when my kids what to lay down and let the chicks crawl on them. Thanks in advance.
